The Shopper's Guide

To use the on-line shopper's guide, follow the steps below:

Step 1) Select your home county. We have published premium charges for every county in Kansas for your comparison shopping. Select your county from the drop-down menu and click "Continue."

Step 2) Select a coverage amount. Amounts assume replacement cost coverage values with wood frame construction and annual premium charge. Amounts quoted may vary slightly from the insurance companies' quoted amounts. Select a coverage amount nearest to the value of your home from the drop-down list and click "Continue." If renting, choose $25,000.

Step 3) Determine your fire protection class. The fire protection classes listed for each company are based on the firefighting capability of a town or city ranging from 1 (most protection) to 10 (least protection). Premium charges will be higher in rural areas for protection class 9 or 10. For your current fire protection class, refer to your existing insurance policy or contact an insurance agent.
